Lights, Camera, Action!

| August 1, 2012 | Parties National

It was a full house as movie moguls and local notables alike (O.C. native/TV producer/restaurateur McG among them) gathered at A Restaurant for the 2012 Directors’ Social—part of the Newport Beach Film Festival’s week of flicks and fun. The evening delivered signature appetizers and desserts from chef Jon Blackford and Shelly Register, as well as an impromptu acoustic performance by two attending directors. But it wasn’t just about the food and film; guests also came to honor the John Wayne Cancer Foundation, which provides research, education and support in the fight against cancer. Even better: McG’s A Restaurant set the stage by giving $10,000 to the nonprofit and showing what it means to really take action. Photos by Ann Chatillon
